Don’t let depression steal your joy

Whether depression is felt mildly or acutely, temporarily or persistently, it strikes nearly everyone at one time or another. But the emotional pain of depression can be overcome—even altogether avoided. Drawing from their professional training, counseling experience, and biblical knowledge, Drs. Minirth and Meier provide expert answers to questions such as:

•What are the symptoms of depression? •What are the primary sources of emotional pain? •Which personality dynamics lead to depression? •How should a person deal with anger and anxiety? •What medical treatments are available for depression?

Now updated with the latest research, Happiness Is a Choice explains the relationship between your spiritual life and your psychological health, and then spells out basic steps for recovering from depression and enjoying a happy, fulfilling life.
